How do I apply loads to only one si

How do I apply loads to only one si

How do I apply loads to only one si

(OP)
How do I apply loads to only one side of a pin hole? The surfaces that come in with my geometry when I import a step file don’t line up on either side of the hole, but rather top and bottom. The pin hole I am analyzing has a force pushing to the left, but I am not able to represent that with the surfaces available, because it simulates “pulling” one side of the hole and pushing the other. Is there an easy way to split the surface, or a different load application technique?

RE: How do I apply loads to only one si

1) Create points near place where you want to split surface. Use Modify->Brake Curve and then split sutface via meshing toolbox - point to edge.
2) Or apply loads directly to mesh nodes.

2D or 3D model ?

apply loads to elements (assuming you've meshed it).

show us the problem.

eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
